This week I have decided to write my own post for Worthy Wednesdays. I have been back and forth with when and what to write about my upcoming adventure to Washington, DC for the Shot@Life Summit. In case you haven’t heard yet, I am 1 of 100 new Champions selected by the United Nations Shot@Life Program to attend the DC Summit. We will learn the basics about vaccines and how to help advocate for children worldwide to have access to life-saving vaccines.
When I met Jen from World Moms Blog she suggested I apply to become a Shot@Life Champion. Aside from the complete and total shock I felt that Jen thought I would be a good fit, I then realized I needed to apply. Shot@Life would be perfect, a great cause that I could get behind and another way to lead my children by example. Not just telling my kids but showing them that I believe children everywhere deserve a Shot At Life AND I believe it so much that I am going to try to do something about it! Won’t you Take The Pledge to help do what you can to help children worldwide??
Stay Tuned because I am sure I will have so much to share once I get going!!
Speaking of Jen from World Moms Blog…..She shared such a great organization today- CleanBirth.org check out the World Moms Blog Post . CleanBirth.org seeks to prevent the needless deaths of mothers and babies in Laos, where maternal and infant mortality rates are among the highest in the world.
One mother dies every minute, 99% in the developing world and 90% are preventable.
By training village nurses and supplying sterile birthing supplies CleanBirth.org is helping save lives in Laos. One birth kit costs $5. What do you spend $5 on in your day? Is one less Starbucks coffee worth helping save two lives? Please consider helping CleanBirth.org reach their goal of supplying Laos with 1,000 birth kits. You can donate here
